Lansdowne Rosary Bowl Background & Inspiration


More Than An Event … It’s Making History … Don’t Miss It - Participate In It!

The Archbishop of Ottawa and the Rector of Canada’s National Marian Shrine will address pilgrims at the Rosary Bowl.

Lansdowne Park (now TD Place) was the site of the historic 1947 Marian Congress where the Dominion of Canada was first consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the presence of the pilgrim statue of Our Lady of the Cape, Canada’s National Madonna.

The Queenship of Mary Community and the Corpus Christi Catholic School Rosary Club will lead the Rosary!
